How to Enable Multicast and uPNP Technology on a Netgear Wndr3300 Router

I have recently bought an amazon fire TV stick for my home but for some reason the streaming seemed sluggish and slow. I have 100 mbps router speed connection and I use a Netgear Wndr3300 router which provide enough juice for most of things in my home and they run smoothly. When this went on for a couple of days I called the Amazon people asking what the problem is and they asked me about my unPP connection settings in my router which I clearly have no idea about. Can anyone of you folks tell me what is this unPP and how does it work?
